Talk Nation Radio: An Israeli General's Son Meets Palestinians, Reverses His Beliefs
What happens when an Israeli from a Zionist military family meets Palestinians and hears their side of the story? Miko Peled was brought around to researching the history of Israel and of his own family. His grandfather signed Israel's Declaration of Independence. His father was a general in the war of 1967. His neice was killed in a suicide attack in Jersalem. He has come to see the story of Israel as virtually the reverse of what he had believed. Peled discusses his new book, The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine, with a foreword by Alice Walker.
